Another weekend round-up of various (mostly prison) stories

Last weekend, I used this round-up to catch up on a number of capital punishment stories.  After another busy week, I am catching up again with a round-up of stories; this week are mostly various prison-related pieces: 

From the AP, "Inmate stuck on US death row despite vacated death sentence"

From The Brennan Center for Justice, "America’s Dystopian Incarceration System of Pay to Stay Behind Bars"
